    WW1 FRENCH TRENCH RIDING PARTY TRENCH KNIFE OR SHORT SWORD/ BRIQUET SIDEARM CONV Knives
    ### NEW LISTING 23/1/16 ### WW1 FRENCH TRENCH RIDING PARTY TRENCH KNIFE OR SHORT SWORD/ BRIQUET SIDEARM CONVERSION Especially considering its age and usage nice original condition.... This has been made into a Trench Raiding Knife / Trench Sword by shortening the blade on a French Briquet Sidearm Given the the weight with its heavy brass handle and wide heavy blade it makes this item about three times the weight of a WW1 trench knife. Not the type of knife to carry around for long periods.Also the weight and size has the psychological effect and stopping power of such items as the Sykes Fairbairn Smatchet...typical of Trench Raiding Party Kit... It also has a fascinating really "BEEN THERE" appearance of having been amongst the sandbags, mud, and machine gun emplacements of a WW1 French Trench...a knife with the real "Marks Of History" Very nicely crafted, probably in the field work shop and the way the knife balances by just above the guard, No sheath but probably never had one. . The blade which is still quite sharp has a blade length of about 27 cm, and a hilt length of about 14.5 cm From a small established collection of French Trench Knives Some rust staining more to the blade but otherwise given its age and the conditions of WW1 front line trenches the knife is in overall nice condition. You must be at least 18 years of age to buy this item. Delivery UK £ 6.50 by Signed Delivery. Will courier Worldwide... if overseas please email for a quote. As a collector I like to treat people as I would like to be treated,if you are not entirely satisfied with a purchase you can return the item for a refund, but we do not refund delivery.Thanks.
